5th Generation Believer. Preacher's Kid. In ministry since childhood. Graduated 3rd year internship at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. Had John 3:16 memorized at 18 months old. Been on ministry teams in America, Mexico, and Cuba. Entire extended family professing to be Christian, most in ministry.

I don't take anything for granted. If something is a majority view it should usually be examined as to why it is so, is it correct or is it just what is the status quo? Broad is the road leading to destruction.

comment Are there other denominations that believe in pre-human existence?
As far as denominations taking that stance, I am unaware of any at the moment. But I know many individuals outside of mormans that do. Origen apparently believed something like this and was one of the reasons cited for calling him a Heretic .

comment How do Old Earth Creationists use 2 Peter 3:8 to support the “day-age” theory?
Yeah a serious OEC like Hugh Ross probably wouldn't give this scripture to defend his position(although he uses it to try to prove a local flood). But I've heard several of his follows try to do just that, the ones I dealt with were not considering that time was meaningless to God, but that it was longer . Like a kind of cognitive dissonance. I see this allong the same lines as "If we evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?" No apologeticist would use that but lay people do.

comment What scientific arguments are there to support Young Earth Creationism as described in the Bible?
So I'm not allowed to answer, but I can however point you to this guy youtube.com/watch?v=pN4YR_1kwL0&list=PL11166601CA0FB279 , who is a Mensa member focusing heavily on the science of it. But it basically boils down to we can disprove all claims of an old earth, God said He did it in 6 days, and He was the only one there so We trust Him. We can pretty well prove the global flood which automatically invalidates deep geologic time, we find that diamonds have to be less than 50k years old, human artifacts in coal beds, evidence of dinosaurs and humans living together. ...

comment Why does Jesus speak of himself in the third person?
@Zoe this is a pun based on the fact that we refer to the Holy Spirit as the 3rd person of the Trinity. So when He speaks of the Father He is speaking in the 1st person according to this logic. :)

comment To a YEC, how does a metaphorical interpretation of Genesis 1-3 distort the gospel?
@bruisedreed That was an excellent edit, I have never heard anyone point that out before. I'll be sure to ask Hugh Ross that question.

Also when Jesus talks about the Holy Spirit, He's technically speaking in the 3rd person as well. ;)

comment According to Catholic teaching; how long do we go to Hell for?
@user-12506 Jesus preached "to the spirits in prison" between the time he hung on the cross and the 3rd day He resurrected , that's what He was doing. It was a one time event because now the people that had died before Jesus had the opportunity to be saved where they didn't before.

comment How Does the Big Bang theory compare to Biblical Creation?
@CecilBeckum You have to read that in to say that. What the text says for itself is that "God called the light day, and the darkness He called night, and there was evening and there was morning day 1" He defined what He meant by Day right there.

comment How Does the Big Bang theory compare to Biblical Creation?
@ChrisSunami don't forget you also have to follow the logic that "There was evening and there was morning" (which are never used symbolically anywhere in scripture) are meaningless as well because the periods overlap in BB cosmology. And in Hugh Rosses interpretation life was created in the first period in the ocean.

comment How do i get the original text of the bible?
I would say this is probably off topic for this site since it's not really a question about what a particular church believes. So I'm not going to make this an answer but I want you to have one none the less. This link will help you lmgtfy.com/?q=download+bible+in+html .
